Abstract

Objective: To examine measurement properties of the Community Integration Questionnaire (CIQ) and the Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) and assess the contributions of cognitive functioning and health to community integration. Design: Rating scale analyses and regression analysis data on basic cognitive functioning and health collected from 289 individuals with traumatic brain injury. Results: Person reliabilities indicated substantial measurement error. Ceiling effects weakened the model (adjusted R2 = .143) specifying the contributions of age, gender, cognitive functioning, and health to community integration. Conclusions: Poor measurement properties and definitional problems associated with community integration weakened the results. The extent to which potential familial and environmental characteristics contributing to role fulfillment change across time requires further research.
